After consuming a few mojito's last night we both felt a bit rough this morning but a good breakfast aided our recovery. Had the usual morning explore, calling at a fantastic bar/restaurant called 'Mango Room' for a drink. It was a colourful and modern place and the menu was fantastic - probably a good choice for tea tonight. Lunch at the hotel was interrupted by our official visit - from the woman at the post office. We had earlier asked if the hotel would be able to post some stuff for us but instead they said they would get someone to come and see us. Two people turned up with a box and sellotape, gave me many forms to complete and packed it all up for me - very efficient, it was like we were lazy rich people who couldn't be bothered to find the post office but the hotel looks after its guests that well they wouldn't have it any other way.
Later that evening we bumped into a young girl who had pestered us last night, she remebered us and wanted to carry on pestering us. It was quite strange because up to now all the children who had approached us had been trying to sell us either bracelets or lip balm, this girl as yet hadn't tried to sell us anything, it seemed like she just liked talking to foreigners.
Just as we walked into Mango Rooms for our evening meal there was a power cut that was to last the duration of our meal. We have had a powercut every night since being in Vietnam but it doesn't stop business for a minute. We ate, in darkness, a fantastic meal.
